This book is fairly comprehensive without being too technical. While is is impossible to cover the entire realm of disabilities, it serves it's purpose well and is quite informative.

I am so thankful for this book. I first came across the 3rd edition of this book just last year, given to me by a doctor friend who thought it might be helpful. And it sure has been. I'm a special education teacher from the states, now a sp ed consultant in a developing country where sp ed is in the pioneering stages. I am dealing with disabiities I never saw in the states, so this book is very helpful in my on-going education. I just got the 6th edition and am eager to see what's new (the 3rd edition was written in the early 90's!).
The book is well written and organized, so that it is a valuable resource whether I am studying about a certain disability or just want to look up certain information.

Easy to understand introduction to childhood development involving disabilities. I will keep this as a reference for years to come. Book is nicely subdivided into easily digestible sections with appropriate headings. That takes some of the sting out of studying, helps you to take good notes, and helps you to find information quickly.

One of the few books purchased for class that I will be keeping. Great reference tool and good information. I teach special education preschool. However, the book is not specific to education and would be a good reference tool for anyone who works with children with special needs.

I had to buy this book for a class at the last minute. I was able to get my hands on this and was thankful. I got it quickly. Now I just have been working through it... written by a neuroscience person it is hard to digest.

I had to purchase this book for my class. I would highly recommend this book, because it was easy to read and understand the concepts. I found the information understandable and not boring to read.

The book has been helping me with my class very well. Delivered after it was guaranteed though, that was frustrating, but good book.
